Our Norwegian Ally The story of; what Norway is doing. in the war for democracy is worthy of recapitulation, not only in tribute to'a brave people but ulso as a reminder not to belittle, the "governments in exile" '7—not' to think of them its gallant Init futile gestures of hopeless defiance, The _Norwegians, beitiK the kind of. .people they are, bad to resist the NayJs to keep their self-respect. Bill they did not stop with the 1'ormaliticfi and— again, because they are the kind of people they are—they have become yery effective allies of Die major anti-Hitler powers; .'[Immediately after the Keieh ovcr- 1 iw were d Norway, corillicthur orders , went, out to the nation's merchant marine, the fourth largest and one of the best in the world. ; The-lawful govcrn- iient, in exile, ordered its ships lo join the Anglo-American fleet; the Nnxis duected Noiwcgian vessels to proceed to axis ports ^ Not a single captain obeyed' Ifitleiv' , Having m mint! tho uxtrcme im|iort- ince'tof shipping-to (lie Uriilwl Nations, it might well be that Norwegian Ships have represented.the margin between defeat and victory. 1 : '">'•; .••*.'* •*' ,. .. $ Many have becir sunlr, carryiiiif ear- goes for our .side. More than 2000 •. NOI-BC sailors died with their'vessels. But out of 1000 craft, some 800 still survive to make Little Norway a big- time factor in the war. r Out of revenue from their merchant luavine the exiled authorities have fin- ^ncert the Royal Norwegian government without subsidy. Ail air force training school, located in Canada, has prepared crews%for several squadrons of Norwe- gian-ojyned -planes- now lighting out of England .and Iceland.

Its mcm- bers'have enjoyetl several raids against the^ invaders of their homeland, and presumably wilPnfake up a key unit of the.United Nations Army that Home day may establish a bridgehead in Norway against Berlin. ; These things arc impoifant, but the merchant- marine's contribution overshadows it. At one critical period Britain was getting half her gasoline and oil, and 40 per cent of her imported food, in Norwegian ships.

Allison jumped from the mule's back. "I feel like a prelzcll" she whispered, stretching her legs and doing a routine of bending exercises. Barry's face was a study in thoughtfulness. Finally he said, "I think the next thing is to follow this trail down and see if we can find where they are treating the ore." Hall opened his shirt and dug into a money belt. Presently he pulled out a crumpled letter and handed it to Barry. "This is the letter the company secured from the Guatemalan government to the Quiche chief asking for his co-operation. It should carry some weight if I can ever get to him." Barry's face brightened as he lead the letter. When he finished he said, "I've got it! The Quiches have never seen you,: and Tony here speaks enough of their language to act as your interpreter. Why don't you and Tony go to the chief at once and Allison and I will follow this trail and see •what we can find out. From what the chief toUTme he doesn't know that these remote mines are being worked. He did say that he'd been having trouble with some of his tribesmen—that he knew some white men were giving them money—breaking the oath of Chichicastenango." : "I can't believe that Eenaldo would have any hand in this sort of thing," Allison said. "He know me ! Hcnaldo is ambitious." the ting ready for the trek to the village-of-lhe-market-place. "flow far is it from here to the Quiche village?" Hall asked Tony. The Indian scratched his black Ihalch of hair. "We be there before sundown." Hall shook hands with Allison and Barry and left. "We can't, be /ar from (lie coast," Barry said, smiling apolo- gelically. "If you can take it we'll push on." Allison was running a comb through her hair. She stopped and smiled up at Barry. "What do you mean—if I can take it?" Barry laid'his hands on her slender shoulders and there was a twinkle in his gray eyes. "I guess I shouldn't ever riues- tion your ability to take it after the way you've come. through hardship down here," Ho hesitated for ii moment and then went on. "I keep thinking of the girl I fciet on the boat in New York. The girl who had never known what hardship was." "That \ras so long ago," Allison said in a hushed voice, "that that Allison seems like a dream to me. I don't think I ever knew her— really." Her violet eyes were shining in the pale light of early morning. Barry tightened his grip on her shoulders and brushed his lips lightly over her forehead. He had a wild desire to crush her in his arms, (o pour out what was really in his heart—but his job wasn't for hers. He pulled himself away lor ncrs. He pulled himself away , B ,.'

A dozen fires \verd Blowing through the dusk and the dark forms of men were moving in their light. "What do we do now?" Allison asked. "We'll get as close as wo can! and sliH be safe." ' They moved on slowly until! icy came to a clump of trees. 1 Hurry slopped and slid from his, mule. JIo motioned Allison to: follow. Together they watched ' lhc glow from the fires showed the outline o£ huge clay ovens- Indians wore shoveling in the ora to be roasted. Others were filling largo earthenware jugs with the precious quicksilver and sealing the tops with wax. Two Indians were hoisting the heavy jugs onto- a two-wheeled cart. "I think Hall was right!" Barry whispered. "They are loading the fishing boats and will probably w?it until late toniglit to sail out to a waiting submarine." They moved stealthily through the night, skirted around the flat promontory where the roasting was being carried on and didn't slop until they stood in the dark shadows on the narrow strip of- beach. Two-wheel cnrU were coming in a sleacly stream down the slope and through the' sand to the water's very edge. The heavy. wheels cut deeply into the soft beach and Quiche drivers urged the mules on with cracking whips. A fire burned on the beach to- cast an eerie light for loaders who were stowing the jars into boats no larger than dinghies!
